] >> a vote for cloture it is a procedural vote and i would suspect to support senator harry reid on a bill he wants to bring up to cut off debate on a motion to proceed so the issue can be taken up. that was illustrated when there were 49 republican senators a couple of years ago, and employees free choice act came out, i was the sole republican who voted for cloture so we could take of the bill. it was not to say that i was for the bill, because i am for the principles of a union certification and first contract, but that is an illustration on a procedural issue where i would vote to take up the bill. i think the legislation ought to be considered by the senate. i am not saying there might not be an extreme case where there was a first amendment issue, or if somebody wanted to cut back on the way i supported hate crimes legislation, or the way i have supported fairness and equality for gays, that i might not if there is a constitutional issue. but i expect to be a book to support cloture. -- i expect to be able to support cloture. >> next question? >> senator specter, i am a constituent of y

they understand how complex and how much it could misfire? >> i think they are and i think certainly harry reid is cognizant of that. i'd be interested in your view, though. what i think i learned covering you, and i wish i had e-mail then because you were hard to get on the phone, was that senators and particularly senators involved in financial stuff, can sort of figure these things out and make it work and delay things and phase in different provisions to try to work out whatever they want to dor. so i'm a little skeptical that they can't do it this way. you tell me, can they make it happen? >> no, i agree with conrad. what happens is what they will do is raise a budget point of order saying, this provision of the bill right here involving health insurance reform on pre-existing conditions, which is absolutely critical to health care reform legislation, is irrelevant to the federal budget in the following ways. then you need 60 votes to overrule that point. so it will take 60 votes within reconciliation to include most of the things that people want included in the bill. and that's basically

: what is your prediction as to the reaction from speaker pelosi and harry reid's article yesterday? guest: there are certainly many different opinions. kathleen sebelius was speaking and a woman introduced her, and the minute they introduced her, people were screaming at her and telling her to shut up. there is certainly a hope that we can have several discussions. americans really want to talk about this and the elected representatives want to hear from you. we hope there williwill be robut debate. there is nothing with that, but it needs to be civil. host: wallace, kansas. go ahead. caller: right now the only thing we have to go by concretely, for those opposed were in favor of health-care reform, it is legislation. if we are happy with our present insurance, we will be able to maintain that. yet, if any changes are made to our plan at work, if we have a child, and someone to the policy, or we lose our job, then we would have to factor the effective date of this plan and go with the government option, leaving private insurance to wither on the vine. do you find it perhaps the dis
